Goblet Squats & A Clean Beaver
I bet that title got you curious huh?
I hope everyone had a good Monday – ha! Totally kidding…rarely possible. I did however, have a couple decent things happen yesterday:
I got my new shoes in the mail.
They are the same New Balance WT20’s that I already own and love, just in a different color. I have been wanting to get another pair, and they were on sale for like $40 cheaper than usual – score!
So I put them to use in a sweaty workout last night.
Training last night was a good one – the focus was definitely on legs, butt, and hips – with some shoulders thrown in too.
We did a couple different squats. Squats with an overhead dumbbell press and also goblet squats with a kettle bell.
Remember when I very first started my training and I had some issues with my hips hurting (they hurt before I ever started my training program)? Which we also realized that I had problems with my form with squats (and a few other things) which was all connected. Anyway, as I mentioned a while back, my hip pain basically stopped as my trainer helped me to correct some stuff and last night I realized that I can finally do my squats with almost perfect form. Excellent! I know that doesnt sound that exciting, but it really is for me!
Out of the 9 different moves we did last night, I would say the goblet squats were my favorite. They were a very low, slow squat – and I definitely feel it today.
I used my lightened up Alfredo sauce recipe. Look at all that broccoli and peas! I tried to load it with veggies and chicken and keep it light on the noodles and sauce. I also dont mix it all together so that the veggies and dont get smothered in sauce.
And I enjoyed it with some Alexa garlic bread – that stuff is my new favorite.
I shoved my face dinner, I plopped down and read a couple magazines I have had stacking up. And if you follow me on Instagram (@andreaoutloud) you probably saw this but I seriously laughed. my. ass. off. when I saw this ad.
Off to be productive (ew). Have a good day!
- Made any good fitness equipment/apparel purchases you are loving lately?
I finally bought myself a little something else that I will share soon too!
- Weird question, but do you have any weird stuff after a workout – like puffiness, extra sweatiness, get really red, etc.
I notice lately I have been getting puffy, Im sure it has something to do with water intake/etc. And sometimes when we do stuff where I’m jumping around a lot I get a little acid reflux (ew).
- What will be your workout tonight?
I’m going to try to get down to the apartment gym tonight and do some running. I’m kind of trying to psych myself up for it because Im not very excited about it.
